There is something that I find to be so magical about this chilly, crisp time of year. All of the deciduous trees are putting on their final show in the richest warm hues and there are scrumptious pumpkin and squash dishes being served everywhere! It’s no secret that Autumn is my favorite time of year, and I love to bring a little bit of the season into our home.
I try not to overwhelm our house with seasonal decor (although that would be really easy for me to do… I love to decorate for holidays!). Instead, I prefer to add little touches to enhance the existing style. For example, I change out the centerpiece on our dining room table and choose more seasonal-scented candles to be placed around the house. I thought that this centerpiece or these candle holders would be such a great way to transition your “tablescape” for the fall. I have repurposed a pair of napkin holders to fit around some candle votives for our dining room table — they add just a little bit seasonal interest.
Basic as it may be, I can’t seem to get enough pumpkin spice in my life this time of year! (That’s not entirely true… do we really need pumpkin spice flavored Pringles or gum??) At any rate, I thought that I had overdone it and bought too many of these candles, but my husband and I can’t seem to stop burning them when we’re at home! They fill the house with the yummiest fragrance and we’re already on our second candle. Haha
For exterior decor I wanted something autumnal, but simple and classic. Our front door is painted a deep red so I also wanted something that would work well with the paint color. When I saw this wreath while browsing at Target I knew it would be the perfect choice (side note: I didn’t even know that it was supposed to be dried hops until I pulled the link for you guys, but how perfect is that for our PNW house?? 😂 ) I also really liked this one and this one — my decision was a tough one!
We will be celebrating both Halloween and Thanksgiving away from home this year, but I couldn’t help myself from making these adjustments to our house to welcome the new season.
I’d love to know how you decorate your living space (or work space!) for fall… is it subtle or all-out? Do you decorate for the whole autumn season or for specific holidays? Let me know in the comments!
